General Rules For The Country

Though you are able to find the three different climates in Greece weather there are similarities throughout the country. The summers in all three climates are hot and rain seems to never fall during the summer months. The winter can get cold but it is milder in the coastal areas of the Mediterranean. Spring and fall are transitional and that is when the weather changes from one day to the next. The country is mountainous and in the higher altitudes it can get rather cold and in the higher peaks it can mean heavy snow. You do not have to be in the Alpine climate to see snow as even some of the Greek islands will experience snow in the highest elevations.
